Hi @KislayT,

 

I didn't know how did you execute the R script then error throws out. To run R script, you can follow those two articles:

Running R Scripts in Power BI Desktop

Using R in Query Editor

Hi,

I am now user of Power BI, and I have started exploring R integration with Power BI.

 

I am trying to run R scripts using Power BI but unable to execute, same script runs fine with R Studio; it seems Power BI is unable to create Temp directory.

 

I provided full permission to the temp directory as well as R Home directory to the user "Everyone", butstill didn't work.

(I know this is not a good idea, but I was trying to find if some permission issue is there somewhere 🙂 )

 

 

Any idea to fix the issue would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks.
